Why I have No Fashion Sense

“Gisele Bundchen says she’s perfectly happy with them all (currencies), denying reports that the Brazilian supermodel is shunning the weak U.S. dollar in favor of European currency.”

But can anyone explain how designers could possibly think that even a supermodel could look good in this?

She looks like she is auditioning for an Oompa Loompa in a John Waters version of Willy Wonka.

Fashion Confusion

My Wife (The Domestic Goddess) has relentlessly commented on the out-of-fashion state of my favorite jeans; the 10 year old Eddie Bauers that I am addicted to. So I went to Nordstroms at Phipps in Atlanta to update my jeans and become a little more fashion concious.

I splurged and bought a couple of pairs of jeans that cost more than most of the slacks I wear to work and to occasions where I add a jacket and tie. I work at a steel warehouse, fab shop, and scrap yard so I do not like to wear expensive pants to work, but I need to wear something better than jeans for meetings and lunch at the City Club.

So now I have jeans that are too expensive to wear to work. I wear my dress slacks to work and change into my jeans at home so I won’t mess them up.

I am confused.
